Summary

What a bad, bat cat! He tears the pillows, he eats the plants, and he even scratches the furniture. He just won't behave! But his family loves him anyway. The simple and repetitive text will provide new readers with a true sense of accomplishment when they finish this book all by themselves. The adorable and quirky illustrations bring this frisky, troublemaking feline to life.

Booklist Review

Gr. 1. New readers will get a kick out of this simple yet amusing entry in the All Aboard Reading series, which has a story that is certain to be readily identifiable to anyone who owns a cat. Cat scratches the table, and he scratches the chair. The upset family's refrain is always the same: «Bad, bad cat.» And so it goes as the cat eats the plants, tears the pillows, steals the food. Kelley's watercolor art shows some classic scenes--the cat hiding under the table with his nose buried in a cup cake as spilled milk drips on the floor. One day Cat escapes out the door, and when he doesn't reappear for dinner, the family searches for him: «Kitty! Darling! Sweetie!» They love him, they miss him, and when he comes back it doesn't matter how bad he is--even with his paw in the fish bowl. Short, simple sentences are packed with emotion; the pictures are full of fun. Ilene Cooper.
